What To Look For In A Great Parental Control Application

Today, parents have more worries than ever before. Teens are experimenting earlier and earlier. At the same time, the Internet is undeniably frightening for modern parents. As soon as your child gains access to a computer or cellphone, you have to worry about their online activities. Are they up to no good? Are they chatting with someone, who may be up to something nefarious? To quell your worries, it is a good idea to install a good parental control app on your child’s phone. Below, you will learn about some of the features that are absolutely vital.

Call And Text Logs

Teens today have a wealth of communication options. They can chat with their friends through conventional phone calls, but many prefer using text messages or instant messenger applications. It is easy for your child to get into trouble through any of these methods. This is why you should choose an application that is capable of monitoring and logging phone calls, text messages and chats from instant messaging programs. Doing so will ensure that you do not miss anything.


The Internet is wonderful in many ways, but it also has a dark side. Certain websites are over-saturated with hideous content that is simply unsuitable for teenagers and young children. You need to prevent your child from accessing these sites at all costs. The best way to put a restriction on your child’s Internet usage is by using a parental control app, such as the one available at https://kidgy.com. You cannot monitor your child twenty-four hours a day. You have work and numerous other responsibilities to juggle.

This Mum-Approved Travel App Helps You Book Cheap Flights

As a parent, it is one of my goals to travel with my son while he is young.  Visiting different places and embarking on new adventures present many opportunities for Jared to  learn and have fun. Most importantly, it also proves to be a very worthwhile bonding activity for our small family. Traveling to various destinations also allows for creating fond memories that I hope he will remember with a smile when he is much older.

Although we would love to travel with our son to popular vacation spots, travel plans almost always take the back seat to give way to more pressing needs and priorities ~ bills, school tuition, grocery, and the list goes on.

Not to mention the steep price of air fares and flights, a trip can set us back a couple of thousand pesos, depending on where we want to go and where we want to stay while there. Cheap flights and promo air fares are hard to come by and I find them always tricky to book whenever I chance upon them. No wonder, most of our plans to take our family on vacations or trips are reserved for when we make extra money or for very special occasions, like birthdays and anniversaries.

Baguio is one of my favorite places. I have only been there twice but both are such great experiences, I cannot wait to go back. Even my little one is raving about our adventure and has been asking when we are coming back. You can read about our travel adventure here.

Baguio is a top choice among Filipino travelers because of the cold weather. It is a welcome break from the usually hot and humid city weather, especially in the scorching summer heat! Apart from the cool temperature, you will never run out of awesome things to do, beautiful places to see, and delicious dishes to try while you are up north. Among my top must-try Baguio activities include horseback riding, biking and playing at the park while sampling the local street food, delectable vegetable dishes at Oh My Gulay, strawberry picking at the Strawberry Farm, and a whole lot more!

A trip to Baguio is not just a welcome break from our daily grind, but it is also one great sensory experience, a delight to our senses. The lush greenery at the parks offers a respite for our otherwise overworked eyes, the local cuisine is a feast for any traveler’s palate, the fascinating clouds that hang low a delectable and welcome change.

I have been wanting to go back to Baguio for a while now but haven’t had the chance to do so. While I plot for yet another Baguio itinerary, I tried looking for  Baguio budget accommodations using Traveloka App and here’s what I came up with:
